Former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher has re-joined the club as part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s backroom staff.
Fletcher, who played for United between 2003 and 2015, has been coaching the under-16s since October but has now stepped up to work with the first team.
“Darren has the United DNA running through his veins and he knows exactly what it takes to be a Manchester United player,” says Solskjaer.
“He is at the start of his coaching career and his experience both on and off the pitch along with his winning mentality, commitment and hard work will be a great addition to the staff,” he said
Fletcher, who was capped 80 times by Scotland and also played for West Bromwich Albion and Stoke after leaving United, will join Mike Phelan, Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna as part of Solskjaer’s support staff.
